A few unsuspecting people got an unexpected surprise when a stranger handed them a phone with someone on the other end, giving them directions for a mission. The person on the other end? Matt Damon. In a video partnering with Omaze in support of water.org, Damon decided to prank strangers, enlisting them as spies to pick up a package and deliver it.

The video is absolutely hilarious, filled with suspicion, awkwardness, hot dogs, swimming elephants and more. One young man was so confused, saying things like, “This better not be f***ing illegal,” and, “Please god, don’t let this be no set up.” Luckily, the man they were delivering it to was Damon himself — and they all won tickets to the premiere of “Jason Bourne” this summer.

The Omaze fundraiser for water.org is now open and the raffle winner will be able to not only attend the premiere with Matt, but also grab a beer with Matt. The flight and hotel stay in Vegas will be covered.

Per the official synopsis, the next Bourne entry “finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.” It is set for release on July 29.
